In September 2009, Randy HOFSTETTER was convicted on 3 counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child for incidents in Hopkins County involving an 8-year-old girl. As a result of the conviction, he was ordered to register as a sex offender quarterly for life. On January 14, 2014, a Probation Violation warrant (Original Offense: Aggravated Sexual Assault Child) was issued out of Hopkins County for his arrest.

The arrest was not from tip information received, so no reward will be paid.
